Sick Visits

What is a sick visit?

When you’re feeling under the weather, sick visits give you the perfect opportunity to address your concerns and get a proper diagnosis. Sick visits are different from well-visits or physical exams in that they focus on diagnosing and treating a particular issue, typically an acute illness like the flu or an infection.  

When should I schedule a sick visit?

Sick visits can help you address a wide range of health concerns. If your attempts to relieve your symptoms at home aren’t working, then a sick visit can help you access high-quality care so you can make a speedy recovery. 

Patients of Advance Medical Group use sick visits to address a number of concerns, including body aches, ear infections, strep throat, and urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Seeking medical care is especially important if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms.

  • High fever
  • Frequent vomiting
  • Severe, lasting cough

If you’re experiencing cold or flu symptoms that don’t seem to go away, meeting with a health care provider at Advance Medical Group can help determine if you’re dealing with a more serious condition like bronchitis or pneumonia. 

You should also seek medical care if you’re experiencing a flare-up from a chronic condition like allergies or asthma. Advance Medical Group provides chronic disease management as well as treatment for getting symptoms under control. 

What happens at sick visits?

During your sick visit, you should be prepared to discuss your signs and symptoms with your provider. Your provider performs a number of evaluations to develop a diagnosis for your condition. Based on your symptoms, you might need to undergo a physical exam, X-ray, swab test, or blood test. 

Will I receive treatment during my appointment?

Depending on your condition, your practitioner provides you with the treatment option that’s right for you. For common conditions like the cold or flu, bed rest, fluids, and monitoring might be the best recommendation. 

Other cases might require over the counter medications or prescriptions like antibiotics. Your provider tailors your treatment plan to your needs and condition. 

Advance Medical Group offers same-day appointments, making it easy for you to access medical care when you need it most. The team specializes in convenient primary and preventive care services with a focus on individualized care.
